    Find a Website Host

    Can anyone give me any pointers on how to track down who is hosting a website?

    Whois gives me E2BN as the registrant but I think itís RM and when I speak to both they refer me to the other. I know you can resolve the web address back to the originating IP but I donít know how to go about it.

    Also I had a program some time ago that you could put an address into and see the path it took on a global map. Does anyone know the name of that?

    Thanks for any input.

    Start -> Run : "cmd"
    nslookup hostname

    should give you the ip address, you could also use ping which may not succeed but will give you the IP.

    tracert hostname - will show you the hostnames of the hops that it makes on its way to the destination which may also be of help

    This is an online visual mapping trace route thing which should do the same as the one that you were talking about:

    VisualRoute traceroute: connection test, trace IP address, IP trace, IP address locations

    And here is a Google maps integrated one:

    Google Maps Traceroute, mixing Google Maps + Host IP + Alert Site.
